Celeb® 201 DMX

 


The Celeb® 201 DMX LED produces a soft, even wraparound lighting quality (CRI 95) and produces color faithfully, beautifully on HD or film, in the studio or on location. The Celeb 201 measures 24” x 14” (61cm x 35.5cm) and is similar in profile and light output as the popular Diva-Lite 415.

The Celeb boasts technical innovations that make it an ideal professional imaging tool: a dial-in variable color temperature control, full-range dimming and programmable 2700K to 6500K presets. The Celeb's 100 Watts of soft, lustrous white light doesn't flicker or shift color temperature when dimmed. With the use of a Lumen Radio transmitter (sold separately), the Celeb 201 can be operated DMX wirelessly as an alternative to DMX cables.

The trim, lightweight fixture operates on universal AC power, 100VAC-240VAC, and needs only less than one amp to produce more lumens than a 750W tungsten soft light. The Celeb 201 LED can also be powered by 24VDC battery. The Celeb's cost savings from low energy and long lamp life continues Kino Flo's reputation as an environmentally friendly lighting company.

The Celeb 201 comes complete with 360 degree mounting, molded accessory holders, removable gel frame and focusing louver.

  Celeb 201 DMX LED
 
   
 

Kino Flo’s innovative Celeb 201 DMX LED is a soft, cool LED ideally suited for today’s growing demands for energy efficient, portable, yet color-correct LED lighting.  The Celeb joins the Kino Flo family of Academy Award-winning lighting systems.  The Celeb was developed using the latest technology to conform to Kino Flo’s highest standards – cool, color-correct, flicker-free and dead quiet, which is what sets the Celeb apart from all other LED’s.

As with all Kino Flos, the Celeb’s soft, lustrous color has been specially formulated to match the spectral distribution curves of HD film and video cameras.  With a high color rendering index (CRI 95), the Celeb operates coolly and flicker-free, even while dimming, and maintains its True Match® color temperature without any color shift. 

The all-in-one metal alloy fixture includes onboard and DMX dimming and runs universally at 100-240VAC or 24VDC. The push-button Kelvin presets can be fine-tuned to custom settings from 2700K to 6500K with a turn of a dial.  Light levels do not change when selecting Kelvin settings. With the use of a Lumen Radio transmitter (sold sparately), the Celeb 201 can be operated DMX wirelessly. The Celeb’s slim profile is lightweight and mounts onto a baby stand or can be hung from a grid with a baby pipe clamp. 

With its soft, beauty light and compact, sturdy design, the Celeb makes a great tool for rigorous everyday use in any studio environment or on location.

  Celeb 201 DMX LED Advantages
   
 

Energy Efficiency

The Celeb 201 DMX LED operates on universal AC power or battery power and needs only 1A (120VAC) to produce more lumens than a 750W tungsten softlight.  The Celeb’s cost savings from low energy and long lamp life continues Kino Flo’s reputation as an environmentally friendly lighting company.

All-in-one Design

The Celeb 201 DMX LED is comprised of a rugged metal alloy fixture which includes state of the art electronics with onboard and
DMX dimming and runs universally at 100-240VAC or 24VDC.  The five push-button Kelvin presets can be fine-tuned to custom settings from 2700K to 6500K with a turn of a dial.  Light levels do not change when selecting Kelvin settings.  Slim and lightweight in design,
the Celeb includes a removable gel frame and honeycomb louver.  The molded corner accessory holders can also be used as a 4-point rope hang.  With wireless capability, the Celeb 201 can be operated DMX wirelessly as an alternative to DMX cables. The all-in-one design with universal VAC or 12VDC and DMX operation makes the Celeb a versatile and portable tool whether it’s in the studio or on location.

Center Mount, Yoke Mount and Pole-Op

The versatility of the Center Mount design allows 360° of unrestricted mounting.  The baby receiver lollipop can mount directly onto a baby stand or hang from a grid with a baby pipe clamp.  Other baby lollipops are interchangeable for further flexibility.  The Yoke Mount fixture includes a welded alloy yoke bale offering unlimited orientation of fixture movement to focus the light when lighting from a grid.  The Pole-Op Yoke includes an attached junior pin and offers advantage of lighting from a grid and eliminating the need for ladder access or costly automated rigging and hoist systems.

Long Lamp Life

Rated lifetime is up to 50,000 Hours. With its long lamp life, the Celeb’s unique design will maintain its color-correct color temperature.

True Match® Color-Correct

As with all Kino Flo products, the Celeb 201 LED has been specially formulated to match the spectral distribution curves of today’s HD film and video equipment.  The Celeb has a high color rendering index of CRI 95.  Even while dimming, the fixture is flicker-free and without color shift.

Heat Management Design

For Kino Flo, heat management is a critical design element of fixture design.  The physical heat or buildup heat within the LED fixture will directly influence the color temperature, lumen performance and life of an LED. 

The Celeb’s unique design operates coolly, consumes very low energy (1A, 120VAC) and is properly ventilated to maintain a stable color temperature.

A well maintained temperature extends the lumen maintenance, color temperature and life of an LED. 

Cost Savings

Cost savings attributed to the Celeb 201 LED cover a broad range of concerns:

  • Low energy costs
  • Less heat so low air conditioning expenses
  • No gel replacements because of low heat

Energy Savings Calculations

With the push for reducing fossil fuel consumption, TV studios are looking at cooler more efficient lighting systems to reduce the costs and save energy.  Part of this process involves generating energy values to determine savings.  One of the most important values is Btu/kWh.

British Thermal Units per Kilowatt Hour

Any light generates a percentage of usable light and the rest in heat.  For example, a standard incandescent light bulb converts only 11 percent of its electrical input into visible light, while the rest is dissipated directly as heat.  There are energy costs involved in cooling the studio environment.  The measure of Btu/kWh is a means of calculating the thermal loads related to operating lighting.

Use the following information to calculate Btu/kWh Watts to Btu:

1 kWh = 3413 Btu/Hr
1 Watt = 3.413 Btu/Hr
3.413 Btu per Watt-hour
